State Court
Mississippi
Court of Appeals
McDonald, J. Greenlee, Westbrooks, Lawrence, Smith and Emfinger, JJ., concur. McCarty, J., concurs in result only without separate written opinion. Wilson, P.J., dissents with separate written opinion, joined by Barnes, C.J., and Carlton, P.J.

Summary

In this Mississippi divorce case, the appellate court en banc reversed in part and remanded in part, asking the trial court to determine whether certain items were marital property and determine the values for certain marital properties so a proper distribution of marital property can be made. Included was a used-car business that was remanded for a value to be determined. Several judges dissented primarily because the marital estate in total was not very material and they believed the appellate court could have made adjustments without remanding.
